Restart at The Beacon Church

Restart at The Beacon Church logo

Restart exists to provide young people the chance to explore life together, in a loving and safe environment. As well as making sure we have loads of fun along the way, we provide the space for young people to really grapple with who they are, and what life holds for them, while giving them the opportunity to hear that God really does love them. We recognise, that there has possibly not been a time where there has been more pressure on young people to achieve, and we want to counter that by assuring young people that you are valued and valuable, not just because of numbers and letters on a piece of paper but because you are you.

What we get up to?

Restart is unlike our other youth groups, in that because of the ages of the young people and the outside pressures of life, we recognise that not everyone can make it every week. Therefore, our programme reflects this in its flexibility. We have a full sized sports hall for big games, and you can usually find a game of football or hockey (or any other manner of game that requires a big space!) happening, but we also have things in smaller rooms and other areas, such as card games like UNO, board games, pool, table tennis, spaces to chat and chill out and there is nearly always something crafty, for those of you who like something for your hands to do. We do create space within the evening for small group chats, this is a chance to really get to know one another, to build relationship, and for us as leaders to let you know about God who loves you massively.
